Patient and Family Support
Hospitalization and medical treatment can be stressful for children and their parents. Because of this, we place special emphasis on clear communications and patient support throughout the child's stay. The staff is committed to parent education and preparation so that both children and their families feel at ease and know what to expect during a hospitalization or procedure.
